With a fresh perspective, I thought I could write about this small company in Silicon Valley that you probably haven't heard of: Real-Time Innovations, Inc. (RTI). RTI has been quietly working on a technology called DDS that could be one of the most important and fundamental tools for the industrial internet revolution. If you haven't heard, the industrial internet, or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), is going to change the world in ways we haven't seen since the industrial revolution. My grandparents saw communications technology change from horse and cart, to the proliferation of the automobile and internet. This next revolution is going to be a much bigger deal.
